BP, Exxon, Saturn Oil & Gas - North America and EU ready for oil deal?

  • Oil

Something is brewing in North America, because nothing less than social and economic independence is at stake. COVID 19 has shown that dependencies in the supply chain pose great dangers. On the one hand, modern society had to learn how difficult it is to obtain masks and, on the other hand, Saudi Arabia ruined the price stability of crude oil by increasing its production volume. An act that deliberately came at an inopportune moment, because with the measures to stem the spread of the corona virus, the demand for the black gold had already fallen by over 20%. The price level of recent weeks at USD 20 per barrel for WTI will drive a large part of the US oil industry into ruin and increase dependence on the OPEC states.

About the author


Canada and USA theoretically self-sufficient

Before the Corona Crisis, Canada's production volume was around 4.5 million barrels a day and the USA produced over 10 million barrels. In terms of volume, production should be sufficient to protect itself from imports through an embargo, but due to the distances between the oil fields and the metropolitan areas the western part of Canada still imports oil from Saudi Arabia.

In total, the two North American states imported 2.5 million barrels of crude oil per day. Should a deal be struck between the two countries and an embargo ban crude oil from overseas, this will significantly strengthen the domestic market.

OPEC increases power by all means

The transatlantic relationship can also be used by the EU to initiate a deal with Canada and the USA to also reduce dependence on OPEC countries. The cartel of 13 oil-producing countries is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year. Even if the price of oil is currently depressing the mood of its members, it is certain that power and influence over the global oil market will increase.

Ultimately, countries such as Saudi Arabia can produce cheaply and thus drive overseas competitors to ruin. The oil market was as big as all other commodity markets combined before COVID-19.

Economic independence in danger

The danger of a strong OPEC is obvious. The member countries are predominantly led by dominant families and despots. In some countries civil war or similar conditions prevail - no trace of human rights. For this reason, it can be assumed that the competitive advantage will be exploited after the collapse of the American and European producers and that consumers outside the OPEC countries will have to pay for the dependence.

The EU and North America are therefore well advised to protect domestic producers and their own independence. Oil is the blood in the veins of the economy. As soon as society has recovered from the Corona Crisis, the demand for oil will rise again.

ESG as a quality standard

A modern society should also be concerned about the origin of the raw material. Model companies are for example BP and Exxon. The Canadian oil producer Saturn Oil & Gas produces in Saskatchewan and has taken up the idea of ESG (Environmental Social Governance). For this reason, the young company has appointed the expert Jim Payne to the Board of Directors.

Jim Payne is the CEO of dynaCERT, a CleanTech company that has developed an award-winning hydrogen technology that reduces the emission of pollutants from internal combustion engines. By February 2021, Saturn's management has entered into price hedging at over 65 CAD per barrel. This risk awareness is a blessing for the company's planning security and shareholders.

Fairtrade crude oil is overdue

Anyone who attaches importance to the fact that eggs come from free-range hens and coffee or bananas are subject to fair trade should also be aware that oil from companies with ESG claims is a contribution to a better society. The current situation, which shows how easily highly developed industrial nations can become a pawn in the game, should be seen as a wake-up call for collective and overdue action: now and today.

BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Saturn Oil & Gas: The rebound with an announcement!

  • Oil

When someone talks about the largest commodities market in the world, they mean the oil market. Every day, almost 100 million barrels of black gold are produced and delivered worldwide, even though Elon Musk adamantly claims "Oil is out!” - He would be particularly well advised to find out how many oil products are used in a Tesla. More than 300 components are made of oil derivatives. According to British Petroleum, undoubtedly one of the major players in the industry, the global oil demand peaked in 2019. In its annual energy outlook, the energy company predicts a global decline in oil demand but a strong gas demand until 2050. Renewable energies are the fastest-growing energy sources over the next 30 years.

BP, Saturn Oil & Gas, Shell: Citigroup and Goldman Sachs see oil price at USD 60

  • Oil

Oil producers may be facing an exciting turnaround. The experts from Citigroup and Goldman Sachs see the price of oil in 2021 already back at USD 60.00 per barrel or even above. The statements of the analysts are supported by the assumption that the current oversupply will have been reduced by then. The recovery of economies around the globe will bring demand for oil back to pre-corona pandemic levels by the end of 2021.
